(Mark Kendall, Jack Russell, Michael Lardie)

Here am I, talkin' at the sky
Thinkin' 'bout it all
I sometimes wonder at the way my life has gone
"Hey boy you stop that runnin'"
I heard it from a friend just today
But as he spoke my heart was miles away

So get that old train rollin'
Come on Mista' engineer
Need a freedom song to call my own
Take me on away from here

Met a girl in California, she asked me if I would stay
And if I could for anyone, oh you know it babe
But soon I got that same ol' feelin'
And I tried to make some sense of it all
Well baby I've been movin' far too long

So get that old train rollin'
Honey wipe away your tears
Need a freedom song to call my own
Take me on away from here
Hearin' that whistle blowin'
Reminds me of the good ol' days
Back on the road where I belong again

Somethin' to live for, the freedom I need
Gotta keep the dream alive now
Gotta keep a piece of me

So get that old train rollin'
Head it on away from here
Back on the road where I belong
Honey wipe away your tears
Hearin' that ol' whistle blowin'
Reminds me of a brand new day
A freedom song for everyone
Back on the road to stay
